« Maximum Allowable Squeeze | Main | S3 Denialism. Part 2 »

In nursing school they played us tapes of heart sounds.

Even on the tape, I just couldn't hear it. I felt sooo dumb as all my classsmates were going "wow, that's very clear." I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.


I had one cardiologist mentor who said that if you hear a clear S3, it's not an S3. I say that if you hear any S3, enjoy the delusion.


Thanks for writing this.


Gute Arbeit hier! Gute Inhalte.


I love this story! I'm sure every profession has a few of these ideas that go unchallenged. Any other 'Emperor has no Clothes' moments you can share?

Very good blog! Thanks!


Second-line drugs used for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis include hydroxychloroquine, gold, penicillamine, azathioprine, sulfasalazine and methotrexate. These agents (which have no immediate analgesic effect) can control symptoms and may possibly delay progression of the disease, but many of them can also cause severe adverse effects and diminish in effectiveness over time. NSAIDs are usually taken concurrently with the slower acting second-line drugs, which may take months to produce a therapeutic response.

Every profession must have it`s myths and revelations. This must be one of them in your field.
